The district received an incentive rebate check for $126,360 after making upgrades at its middle school, elementary schools, and high school to reduce electric and natural gas use. As a result, the school district will save about $97,000 in energy each year.
Bullock Creek Elementary, Floyd Elementary, Pine River Elementary, Bullock Creek Middle School, and Bullock Creek High School all received energy saving upgrades.
“Receiving these incentives to upgrade our facilities and provide energy cost reductions year after year lets us apply more resources to our main mission, providing high-quality education to our community,” said Charlie Schwedler, Bullock Creek superintendent of schools. “The incentive program has resulted in a true win-win for our district.” MEDIA: WNEM TV 5 and Midland Daily News
